Bivvy spot around Skipton/Ilkley/Bolton Abbey?

Post by occasionalbikepacker »

Hi, mate and I are planning a quick bivvy Thursday night out from Leeds. Have a few hours to play with on the Thursday, but need to be within a couple of hours ride back to Leeds for Friday morning. Looking at options around Ilkley/Bolton Abbey/Skipton.

The ground is pretty wet under wheel, with more rain on the way between now and then. So, somewhere that drains well would be good, also fairly well protected from westerly showers/breeze.

I've been eyeing up Barden Moor, think there are some shooting huts up there, anyone know whether they would make a good bivvy spot, and whether you'd get away with using one?

Or, any other suggestions?
